    Checkatrade Offer

    Some of you may have noticed the Checkatrade banner offering 12 months for the price of 10. We have had various threads over time on Checkatrade and other websites that promise to boost enquiries. I remember last time round there was a mixed bag of opinions on how effective Checkatrade for tree surgeons actually is. Some claimed as much as 90% of their work was as a direct result, with others saying they received no enquiries. I would be keen to hear more up to date results, or any other advertising routes you may have gone down. Poll attached.

    For me the reverse was true. When I was getting wood for free or cheap it was a good little earner on the side. When prices started rising around 10 years ago it killed it for me. I was only doing around 80-100 ton a year and realised for it to be a viable business I would need to be selling an awful lot more than that

    how to deal with an employee

    Having to pick someone up every day is a massive pain in the arse. Even if it is only a couple miles away. All that time adds up significantly over the course of a week/month. Even more annoying when they aren't ready. Years ago I got roped into picking someone up. Started off ok but as time went by more and more liberties were taken. The final straw was when he came running out of the house one morning and asked me if I could wait a minute as he was just changing the little ones bum. That in itself wouldn't have bothered me, its the fact his partner was a stay at home mum and could quite easily have done it herself.

    Saw milling directory

    Found a bug in the address fields; people who have already submitted listings need to redo the address when they can please. The auto-populating was double populating the fields. Fixed now

    Yes. So the way I envisage it is the classifeds would be on a different part of the site, but anything you posted would also be shown on your listing page

    Game of Thrones - spoilers alert

    Did anyone else throw up in their mouth a little when jamie got it on with 'the big woman'? Sansa, hated the whiney cow from day 1 and towards the end she got on my nerves even more. Hated seeing her on the throne at the end. John, well his life just sucks Danaerys, well she kinda had it coming I'd like to see a follow up story on the unsullied...I mean its not like they can put their spears down and start a family.

    Life of a climbing rope

    I'd be mightily surprised if anyone has ever had an old rope fail on them, assuming it was looked after and free of any obvious cuts/defects.
  22. Steve Bullman

    Anyone used the Notch Jet Step

    Looks interesting. Is it easier to get on and off the rope than a regular type?
